How I was made, 2012, acrylic, wood, paint, light controllers, LED neon, 14 x 492 x 2.5 inches
Thanks to Green LED lighting for their generous support. Commissioned by Socrates Sculpture Park for the Emerging
Artist Fellowship 2012.
Questioning language and our personal construction of self through language, self-examination, and ultimately
self-discovery, the work constructs a visual poem where the content of the poem, the form, and the action of reading
dovetail to expand the readings of the poem. Constructed of wood, LED neon, acrylic, and utilizing light controllers,
the artwork cycles through the three line poem in 30 second intervals.
The poem reads:
I must name
to find I do not know
how I was made
